‘Biggest Little Christmas Showdown’ is a four-part mini-series that premiered on November 27, 2020, on HGTV. The holiday-themed reality show sees teams of miniaturists competing against each other to create the “merriest” mini-holiday homes. The team that creates the most extravagant mini home wins a grand prize of $50,000, and their miniature model is replicated into a full-sized holiday home decorated for Christmas.
James Monroe Iglehart is the host of this unique show. He is known for his Broadway career as well as his role as Coriolanus Burt on ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.’ In the show, we see some of the most detailed and gorgeous mini-holiday homes, handcrafted by the contestants. Naturally, we got curious to know where it is filmed, and here is what we found!
